‘The Gypsy King’ is one of the best trash talkers in the sport. And in all of his fights, he has displayed prime abilities to verbally smother his rivals.

However, in his illustrious career span, Fury hasn’t really engaged in verbal tussles with fans criticizing him over anything. That said, he might not issue his fiery responses to everyone who criticized him for his deadlift video.
